LM #239 - GRATITUDE - May Challenges... "Life Affirmations" starts today. :)

Hello Everyone!!  We are on to our next challenge and the beginning of our MAY challenges and a new theme!!  We have 5 weeks this time!!  Lot's of options to join us.
We loved everything that came in for our April challenges.  Winners will be chosen this week and revealed Saturday May 2nd.
And another special THANK YOU to JANET for joining us in March as our GDT.  Love your work and of course hope to see you join our challenges.  You can visit Janet's blog and see her talent up close and personal by clicking HERE.
In the mean time... let's get started on the new month.  I think you will all appreciate these next few challenges for they all really speak to why many of us scrapbook.  To remember that moment and to tell a story in a way that no one can comprehend unless they saw it in pictures.  So stick with us and join Lasting Memories this month!!   
It's all about LIFE AFFIRMATIONS...
Our first one is
  LMCB # 239 - "GRATITUDE" - 
Someone or something you have Gratitude for.

Let's see what our wonderfully talented DT has to share with you...
